Added an ED grille with mesh, will keep mesh black I think and paint the outside of the grille the colour of the car, or other option paint the lot colour coded (thoughts people)
Added mesh in the lower part of the body kit, might keep it black, might colour code (again thoughts please)

is there some how you can get it to follow the line of the badge so it looks like it was made for the car.

No offence meant

Cheers

Id suggest painting the surround to match the car, remove the badge, fill and paint the hole, and re-fit the badge to the mesh, or even no badge at all. Leave the mesh black too.

paint around the mesh colour of the car, and leave the mesh black and then take the ford badge off the bonnet fill the hole and then put the ford badge in the middle of the mesh.

i think id agree with the relocation of the badge idea and definatly color coding around the grille. do u have any plans to blackout some of the are in the headlight u can see in that picture where the ba headlight doesnt cover the whole lens? if u get me? might make it look a bit more professional.

Nice mod.
I would paint around the mesh, leaving the mesh black and the rest of the area the gold body colour. The car is comming along well.

BTW hows the BA shifter working out?

Thanks :D

I posted a wanted thread, but will ask here too, any one got an ED Ghia grille or the chrome insert to sell me.

I figure with BA lights, the chrome grille insert, Badge moved to the middle of the grille, and the bonnet filled in, would just complete the front end perfectly.
